When the Suns host the Cavaliers on Sunday, they will look to snap a five-game losing streak. These two teams met just a few days ago in Cleveland, where the Cavs won 90-88.
Latest Updates on Darius Garland and Donovan Mitchell’ injury status
The Cavaliers injuries reports
|Ricky Rubio||PG||Sat, Jan 7||Knee||Expected to be out until at least Jan 10|
|Dylan Windler||SG||Sat, Jan 7||Ankle||Expected to be out until at least Jan 10|
|Dean Wade||PF||Sat, Jan 7||Shoulder||Expected to be out until at least Jan 10|
|Donovan Mitchell||SG||Sat, Jan 7||Rest||Game Time Decision|
|Darius Garland||PG||Sat, Jan 7||Thumb||Game Time Decision|
Darius Garland (thumb) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Suns.
Garland returned from a sprained thumb against the Nuggets on Friday, posting 21 points, eight assists, and four rebounds in 33 minutes. However, he is suffering from post-game soreness and may need to miss another game.
With Darius Garland (thumb) unavailable for the Cavaliers over the last three games, Donovan Mitchell has seen over 35 minutes a game and currently is averaging a career-high 36.7 minutes.
The Suns injuries reports
You have to feel for the Suns. They’ve been rocked by injuries to Booker, Johnson, Payne, and now possibly Chris Paul.

Paul is questionable, but I’m guessing they give him more time to rest before the road trip next week. As a result of the injuries, players such as Landry Shamet, Craig, Damion Lee, and Duane Washington have been thrust into key roles to assist Ayton and Bridges.
